    The first song is Talisman by Air. Ahmed has such a great taste in music in
    his videos

    Hi Simen! Read your post and although I’m not as experienced as Ahmed, let
    me tell you that, NO. No way you anchor once the sun sets. You just manage
    to sail the night. As u should saw, the boat has plenty of helping tools
    for that. Radar, GPS, AIS, automatic helm, and other electronics. Its
    important to keep in watch. You probably would sleep 3/4 hours if no shore
    nor traffic around. Check everything is fine and get for a another snap..
    Good winds!

    Hi! this was really awesome! Im a bit new to this stuff. Hopefully I’ll be
    getting a international sailing certificate this year! But when your
    sailing solo, what do you do at night, do you anchor up, or do you just let
    it sail on? And also, what is these cable guard rails?

    As I Am sitting now at school and doing homework, trying to understand
    functions, i can only dream of the day when I will, like you, travel across
    the Atlantic or Pacific. Nice to see the AUM on that boat too… Good luck
    and keep them coming!

    I loved your electronics on board, very nice set up!! You need to learn to
    cook… LOL yea a second set of eyes is always nice so there is always
    someone on watch… kind of like Skipper and Gilligan.. hahaa!! Enjoyed
    your videos, mostly watching the sailing parts.. would have liked to have
    seen more Dolphins or Whales or something along that lines… You should
    also hang a fishing line out the back… nothing wrong with free fresh
    dinner!! Like the Music too, what is it??
